I think at this point I must disclose that I am an affiliate of both Snapfish by HP and HP Computers. Below I am including the creative that Snapfish by HP provided to its affiliates for the generic holiday season. After making the observation that in not one of the 191 links that HP Snapfish made available as of December 19th, 2010 do they actually mention the word Christmas, I decided to point it out. It is alluded to, because they, like everybody else, want to cash in on Christmas, they just don't think it is needed to call this holy day by its actual name.

That did not stop them from directly referring to Hanukkah or the completely fabricated farce of a holiday Kwanzaa. And they also have ads for Hispanic cards? What is a Hispanic Card if I may ask? Is that not the stupidest thing you have ever heard of? I do not mean that as an insult to Hispanics (except anybody associated with La Raza - then I do mean it to be an insult). If HP Snapfish came out with Euro/Caucasian cards I would think they have lost their minds. What is going on here?

Do not think this is an oversight, - I noticed this in November and emailed the marketing rep to inquire about it. His response implied the Christmas ads were coming. This is deliberate. I am going to let my readers make up their own minds about whether or not to care, or to do anything about it. I am just pointing it out.

Below is an exhaustive list of their ads - I have removed 70 or so because they were duplicated anyway in smaller format. Be aware, these are my affiliate links and I will make money if you click on one and then buy something. At least until HP and HP Snapfish boot me out of their programs and file a lawsuit against me, which I expect to be about 5 minutes after they get a load of my post here.

I would rather live without HP Snapfish than Christmas.


Interesting to note: Snapfish by HP's German advertising refer to "Weihnachten" - which is German for Christmas. I am not an affiliate of Snapfish by HP's German program.

You obviously don't shop at snapfish. If you actually did you'd see that there is a link in the header that specifically directs you to CHRISTMAS cards.

A whole header? Wow, I didn't realize they actually took the time to devote a whole header to Christmas!
